Chilly Gonzales discusses “trolling” his audience and more in his Telekom Full Story
November 21, 2019
Kingdom has long been a central figure in vocal-led R&B-meets-dance music. The Fade to Mind boss and LA-based producer has pioneered a hyper-melodic and future-facing sound through the label, releasing (and producing for) Kelela’s influential ‘CUT 4 ME’ album along with early offerings from the likes of D∆WN, Nguzunguzu and Fatima Al Qadiri.
Dropping his debut ‘Tears in the Club’ LP in 2017 that tapped up Syd and SZA for vocals, he’s kept the theme of the strong female vocal on his newest offering, ‘EXTERRA (Vol. 1)’. Released today, the six-tracker finds Brooklyn’s Ms. Boogie and Tiara Thomas lacing the harder-hitting beats that verge at times on crunk with their vocals. In the spirit of this, Kingdom has shared his ten favourite all-female vocals over breakbeat house, breakbeat hardcore, and early jungle.
